The Palme d'Or ("Golden Palm") is the name of the highest prize given to a film at the Cannes Film Festival. The prize was introduced in 1955 by the organizing committee (it was previously known as the Grand Prix du Festival international du film) and is now regarded as one of the film industry's most distinguished prizes.
